Pop Up Posies Designer Kit
March 03, 2013
Hello and I hope you're having a lovely weekend. Today's card features the Pop Up Posies Designer Kit.
The kit (on page 18 of the Stampin' Up Seasonal Catalogue) has 9 of those handy tags, plus all the bits and bobs you need to embellish them with 3 styles of flower. There are 9 fabric covered brads plus the flowers - some as pictured above in Calypso Coral and Pool Party, plus some Very Vanilla patty pan style ones. You get some bakers twine as well as that Just For You stamp. Pop the completed tags on a gift, or use them on a card like I have. The kit including the stamp is $22.95.
I've used a Crumb Cake base and piece of patterned paper from the More Amore DSP pack on page 10.
I had some lace leftover from the Artisan Embellishment kit too.
Speaking of Amore - Valentines' Day was last month and it was my turn to remember (well only just!) John and I seem to take it year about. I remembered rather late so was in my usual rush. I got a little cake from the bakery, a card out of my stash from a Stampin' Up event a few years ago, and quickly punched a couple of hearts from the More Amore DSP to pop onto a toothpick and stick into the cake. Punches are such handy tools!
Here's a closer look at the card. The stamp set has long retired (I've forgotten the name of it now) but I thought I'd share the idea to use acetate. Sort of hard to photograph but the base card is acetate or window sheet, then there's the cardstock panel stuck onto the front and inside ready to write on. A bit of a fingerprint collector but nice for something different.
And now I'd best get back to the dining table. I'm chained to it this weekend filing a gazillion bits of paper while we have a weekend catching up on some tax returns. And filling up a few boxes of recycling along the way. It will be nice to get it all done I guess.
Hope your weekend includes something exciting. Happy stamping.
